Injunctions are a discretionary remedy and they are often used to prevent a person or company from engaging in specific acts or from doing particular activities. If injunctive proceedings are considered, it is imperative to act quickly and definitively in appointing legal representatives, and then in making an application for injunctive relief.
If you are currently in dispute with an individual or company, or anticipate that a dispute may arise, it is important to seek advice at the earliest possible stage. This is particularly so if there is a risk of damage to your / your company’s reputation by the counterparty to a dispute.
At Muldoon Britton, we have extensive experience in seeking and defending applications for injunctive relief and can mobilise our team to prepare an application for injunctive relief at short notice.
In some circumstances, a party to a dispute may try to dispose of assets before litigation proceedings begin or otherwise ignore requests to stop certain activities.
A freezing order is a type of injunction that will prevent the disposal of assets until the case goes to trial. If there is a freezing order on a business, they will be free to continue trading as usual and pay their business expenses. If the freezing order is placed on an individual, they will also be able to continue paying their personal/household expenses, and can fund the legal proceedings from their frozen accounts.
